Glenn Curtiss, one of aviation's greatest pioneers, played an equally important role with his business partner James H. Bright in founding three famous south Florida cities: Hialeah, Miami Springs and Opa Locka. 

Tireless inventor and reckless speed demon Glenn Curtiss left a trail of "firsts" in his wake, including patents, transatlantic flights and a 1907 land speed record. James Bright was a fellow visionary who partnered with Curtiss to develop the communities of Hialeah, Miami Springs and Opa Locka. Told here for the first time, this captivation story is one of dating, entrepreneurship in the midst of the south Florida bland boom of the early 1920s.
